mudmen!

Tonight, I went to see the Mudmen, hard rocking bagpipe music. The doors were originally scheduled to open at 8, with the show starting at 9. At 8, we were told the doors would open at 10. The band did not play until 12. They played 4 songs. Good, but short. I wanted to buy CDs, but none were for sale, despite the (empty) merch table - I have been trying to restrict my music buying to shows where the band gets a better cut.

The show, sadly, was at the Rebuplik, on Richmond near John.

Phrases uttered (by me) during the course of the night;

"you must be at least this tall to rawk", indicating my nipples - most attendees would therefore not be permitted to rawk.
"I have sperm older than you"
"I have had pubic hair longer than you have been alive"

Some kid tried to pick me up with the line "do you have an accent?"

...

Seriously. I am too old for this shit. I spent a lot of time scowling.

olletho, you and B. dodged a bullet.

When a mosh pit appeared, I, who while overweight does not qualify by most people's definitions of "large", outmassed any three other mosh pit people.

A sad, sad showing. I was the only audience member in a kilt. Shame, Toronto, shame.

the_real_crispy has opened for the Mudmen. He wasn't a fan of their style, if I recall :)

First off, rock n' roll bagpipe music? Sign me up!

Secondly, a 9 PM show that started at midnight and there were only 4 songs? I'd be howling for blood an a refund.

Thirdly, you are not overweight and you are not too old.

Exactly. Now, I am overweight and old...

The Mudmen really are worth looking up.

The thing that baffled me was, most of the people there weren't there to see the band, which means they paid at least as much as we did for our tix, prolly more since they were paying at the door. I cannot comprehend why one would pay $20 for... that. Unless it's that they're willing to ignore bad fake id, which might explain a few things.

Wow, glad we missed it, would have been most miffed to pay money for that.

I really do wonder what the hell happened, screaming arguement with the promoter maybe?

pez_minotaur was talking to one of the pipers before the show, and apparently this was a sort of poorly organized show on the spur of the moment; they knew it wouldn't be their kind of crowd, but it paid.

A lot of things can be read between the lines there.

oh and walking home, B and I passed a conversation that held an even worse pick up line.

Are you read for this?

Ahem: "So, you know how you can tell a female llama is pregnant?"

I give up, how do you know how you can tell a female llama is pregnant?

I don't know either, but you're not going to get laid by trying to tell a chick how on a street corner.

Wow...I almost feel guilty for having gone to a kickass concert now.

Sorry it sucked...time to go to overage shows only?

Well, it wasn't an all-ages show, so *in theory* all those kids *should* have been over 19. I am dubious about that though.

While, technically, those things are true about my students (or future students, or whatever), I would not be allowed to say them. Which really is a shame.

Well, you can't say those things at school, anyway. :)
